COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle. Also available in keg for export only. The very occasional cask version is only available in the UK and has a separate listing.
Goldings hops and Golden Promise malt.
At 8.5% ABV, Golden Pride guarantees a superb range of flavours, that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Our brewers describe Golden Pride thus: ’ deep amber in appearance, Golden Pride is full bodied, of moderate bitterness, moderately hopped and rich in malt. Full flavoured, and reminiscent of sweet orange oil, toasted grains, and bread. Rich malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with an intense finish. Sweet and bitter flavours are expressed in good balance in this weighty brew.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

Panzerfaust (578) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 18, 2012
500 ml bottle from Jumbo Alto Las Condes. Pours a hazy dark amber/bronze color with a medium grayish-white head that laces well. Strong, malty-fruity aroma, complex with notes of molasses, peaches, strawberries, Amaretto cream, cranberries, hay, buttery biscuit and lots of phenols. Big, overpowering and malty. Intensely sweet, syrupy but well-made. Big flavors of molasses, palm syrup, overripe peaches and liquor. Boozy and heavy. When it warms, the sweetness becomes overwhelming. The hops are barely noticeable. Huge body, thick in the mouth. Finish is long and leaves a warm and boozy sensation in the mouth. As much a Barley Wine as an English Strong Ale. Enjoyable yet a little too sweet.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2009
500mL bottle from Regionals. Pours a red/orange hue with a tan head which dissipates quickly.
A very sweet nose on this one. Lots of brown sugar like a barley wine but has some raisin fruitiness.
Flavour is quite complex. Initially sweet, along with some raisin. Sweetness is balanced mid way with a good bitterness. A very mouth filling beer, and there is a bit of spiciness right near the finish which is long and bitter.
This is like a very drinkable barley wine. It would be interesting to try this freshly brewed, so the hops can flourish more.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 4, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a deep amber color with a mediumsized white head, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, honey, fruit candy, dried fruits and some plums. Flavour is fruity and malty sweet with clear toffee and honey notes together with some spicy hops. Medium bitterness in the finish. Mediumbodied on the palate, slightly oily and quite smooth, the carbonation is soft. A nice sipper, maybe not that complex but overall quite tasty and definitely priceworthy.
